What was said?

“I told them today just in there, like no complacency. You can’t be complacent, and there should be no fear of failure. We go after each game, the outcome’s always the same. We always want to win game, so that’ll be no different, and we’ll just make sure that there’s no complacency in the group.” – interim manager Rob Valentino

“I think we showed a lot of grit tonight, I think, especially with the field not being in the greatest of condition, I think we showed our grit, and we bunkered down. We defended the set piece as well. I think that just that just shows where we’re at as a team.” – Noah Cobb
